Out soon (end of October – early November) from Michel De Trez, this new book dedicated to paratrooper helmets. In recent years we have seen the release of a number of high quality books on the M1 helmet, but none specifically about the parachutist versions. This book focusses on all variations of shells and liners and different markings present on para helmets. We are getting it from the horse’s mouth because Michel De Trez has a huge para helmet collection himself. Many of them unique pieces from historic figures who appeared in his earlier works. This book is availably in English from the English language version of paratrooper.fr. I ordered one already. When I get it I will write a detailed review.
